Re: “This Exhibit on Environmental Degradation Is Just Sad

Understandably, one would like to be fed another utopian hope (to stir one's emotions) when confronting failed past utopian endeavors. But wouldn't that be missing the point? I agree that this work might invoke sadness, despondency, and pity. In my opinion, that allows one to begin the process of looking at our environmental/cultural/economic status from a responsible point of view, instead of swapping new utopian visions for the old ones.

It is also understandable, in a capitalist system, to expect art to distract, entertain, offer fantasy or escapism- but it takes courage and conviction from an artist to present the reality she sees, even if this causes discomfort. Congrats to Ms. Escott.
